So, they made a Facebook post to ask if anyone in the apparently small town of West Frankfort had seen the dress. Read More

HOW DARE YOU. (Photo via instagram.com/hilariabaldwin)

You have to be leading a pretty charmed life if one of your chief gripes is the fact that Alec Baldwin’s wife is uploading yoga selfies on Instagram.

And yet, that’s exactly what a few NYC yogis did in the New York Post today. In the story “Celebrity posers have yoga world in a twist,” yoga instructors throw major shade at celebs like Gisele Bundchen, Kaley Cuoco and the aforementioned Hilaria Baldwin. And it’s not because these ladies have disparaged those who practice yoga — it’s because they’re partaking in it too publicly.

And it’s just one more example of critics crying “attention whore!” at women who dare to control their own images using social media. Why do they even care what goes on in another person’s Instagram feed? Let’s allow them to explain. Read More

Step aside, Ellen, because a bunch of koala bears in a Sydney zoo have just become the new masters of selfie-taking.

They’re not using iPhones (that would be really hard, given their oddly-shaped paws), but a Sony QX100 camera, which has been installed in their enclosure. The camera, which was reportedly installed a few weeks ago, consists of a small lens attached to a tripod with bendable legs — easy for wrapping around a tree branch. The koalas’ movements trigger the camera to capture images, which are then displayed on a nearby screen. Read More
